"Black & Gold" as written by Samuel F Falson and Jesse Samuel Rogg....
Mmm
If the fish swam out of the ocean
And grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed down from the trees
And grew tall and they started talking

And the stars fell out of the sky
And the tears rolled into the ocean
And now I'm looking for a reason why
You even set my world into motion

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter

'Cause if you're not really here
I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

Mmm
I look up into the night sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black

I feel a way of something beyond them
I don't see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn't real

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
(Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold)
Mmm (black and gold, black and gold, black and gold)
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, oh oh

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter

'Cause if you're not really here
I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

    Song Meaningi dont necessarily think that he is questioning the existence of GOD, but i believe he is asking why don't i feel you because i want to be close to you.I have believed you were there and now it's BLACK AND GOLD ,my vision is blurry ,im not seeing what I WANT to see.Sam wanted to see everything laid out in front of him so that it;ll all be clear instead he;s seeing black and gold.
    sam is scared, the stuff he sees is his only knowledge of what is real( HIS ONLY VALIDATION).so if what he believed in so long is not really there than he doesn't want to live, he wants to be with the one he believed in, GOD(wants to be in heaven)he only knew that GOD LOVED him,probably no one else loved him so there is no reason to live.FYI: the gold in lack and gold might stand for the gold streets in heaven.

    Song MeaningI just figured it out,now an order for you to understand this song fully you should know a lilte about science and christianity.THE BEGGING: is all about evolution. read it carefullyIf the fish swam out of the ocean
    and grew legs and they started walking
    and the apes climbed down from the trees
    and grew tall and they started talkingand the stars fell out of the sky
    and my tears rolled into the ocean
    now i'm looking for a reason why
    you even set my world into motion

    2cd: he probably is questioning the existence of GOD
    3rd:black and gold ,maybe he wants to go to heaven or hell,and be next to that person he wants to be next to
    4th: this man does not know what to believe in,he is confused,always having doubts or second guessing someone or something of higher or lower power.The only things he belives in is what he sees thats his validation.
    hes saying that nothing really matters without GOD the one he believed in and stiil does Sam doesn;t know who to follow were to go or what to believe in it is all black and gold or blurry.
